Kiwi House – Baton Rouge, LA

At a cost of just $98 / sq. ft., the Kiwi House is a good example of how contemporary design can also be cost effective.

Designed by +One Design + Construction, the concept of the home, in plan, beckons to the shotgun style houses built during the late 19th & early 20th centuries where rooms are stacked front to back.

In this design, all rooms are aligned to the left side of the house and share a common hallway, which lines the right side of the house.  
Floors are polished concrete throughout, and wood slat screen walls shades a side porch which runs partially down the side of the house.  
A simple exterior material palette includes cement board siding / trim, corrugated metal panels (siding & roofing) and wood slats (screens).
